LAHORE - Govt is considering to rename the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) and placing it under control of Law Ministry which has sent a summary in this regard to Prime Minister's House and notification in this regard may be issued within a next couple of days, The Nation learnt through reliable sources on Thursday. Govt had to face severe criticism when it tried to place the services of two intelligence agencies under Rehman Malik. The sources further disclosed that a proposal regarding minimizing the powers of NAB were also under in the summary and development in this connection could also be seen shortly. At present NAB is working under the control of Cabinet Division and enjoying special powers of 90 days for physical remand of the accused and hearing of its cases in Accountability Courts. At present an accused of the NAB could get bail from any High Court of the country. Now it is being said that period of physical remand would be minimized from 90 to 30 days and hearing of the cases would also be given to the lower judiciary and its cases could be proceeded in the normal lower courts. An officer of the NAB seeking anonymity said that by implementing such sorts of amendments NAB would become only a pressure tool for the rulers and it would be utilised for victimization of their rival politicians. 'Giving powers to the lower judiciary would only benefit the accused and criminals who would get pre-arrest bail from the normal courts which are not enjoying good reputation in the country', he maintained. Another official said that govt has already taken decision to take direct control of some agencies but later this decision was taken back, now what happened regarding fate of the NAB lets see. According to UN Convention Against Corruption (UNCAC) which was signed by Pakistan in September last year, there has to be essentially a national anti-corruption body in Pakistan which must adhere to the best internationally accepted anti-corruption practices.
